BoA just concluded her first concert outside Japan and Korea.

Taiwan was graced by the Queen’s presence as she performed for her HERE I AM concert at the National Taiwan University Gymnasium. Thousands of Jumpings gathered from all around the globe to witness this performance. It’s incredibly vexing that she’s so close here in the Philippines but I can’t even afford and fly to Taiwan. I want to experience this moment with fellow Jumpings but… *sniff*

It’s so hard to be poor…

But one day for sure BoA! Wait for me! I AM HERE.

Anyway, here’s an unofficial video of her encore stage.

 

 

BoA sang “Hope” and no other song is deemed more fitting as the encore song but this. It’s such an inspiring and wonderful song and I’m just so overwhelmed with feelings whenever I listen to it. I remember being especially shocked when I found out that it’s included in her set list. I think I was near crying listening to this.

I thought the initial shock was over but then, the Taiwan concert happened and it was even more touching.

Thanks to our fellow Taiwanese Jumpings, they were able to illicit more feelings and genuine tears from BoA. Although expressed this way, I know that she was really and truly happy.

I thought I was gonna cry looking at those pictures, too. And then reading fan accounts made me crippled with feels as well. Watching the video itself made me so, sooo emotional as it is. *sniff* I hope BoA knows just how much she is loved. Jumpings are the most loyal fandom out there. We got your back! We’ll support and protect you!!!

Gosh… Such a great day for BoA. I wish she would have more concerts outside Korea and Japan and then eventually, I get to attend one of those concerts.

I need to watch her in her solo concert at least once in this lifetime!

Until then…

HOPE (English translation)

I’ve never gone lightly, I always stood there, scrunched up
They’re looking at me, pointing fingers and laughing
They always made fun of me because I looked different

Though the wind blows and the dust settles
Though the rain pours and drenches me miserably
I always try to roll around – each time I take a step, the traces are left deeper and clearer

Pointy and good-for-nothing square wheel, if you cut off the adversity, it will become round
The day I spread my broken wings, I will run strongly to the hill

Yes, I’m hopeful – these tears shall dry yeah

My hardships don’t look nice and are slow but I will silently endure and overcome
I will perfect myself and clash once again

I dream of looking at a large meadow and if it crumbles slowly and the speed catches on
Even I, who was ridiculed, will smile widely as I look confidently to the world

Pointy and good-for-nothing square wheel, if you cut off the adversity, it will become round
The day I spread my broken wings, I will run strongly to the hill

These tears shall dry

In these long sufferings that will wear out between the rocks
I will be born again – I just think about that
The moment I am blessed in the green forest filled with flowers
It will find me as well so I will find myself too

Pointy and good-for-nothing square wheel, if you cut off the adversity, it will become round
The day I spread my broken wings, I will run strongly to the hill

Yes, I’m hopeful, I will find myself, these tears shall dry yeah

I’m hopeful

These tears shall dry yeah

My ghad, my English is so embarrassing today. I can’t string my words properly. I think I’m still full of feels.
